The Aid Effectiveness Project (AEP) aims to strengthen the Government of Bangladesh’s capacity to manage effectively the information related to aid and the governments systems in order to improve its development results. AEP also focuses on ensuring that the parliament and civil society have access to this information. This is done mainly through consolidating the capacities of the government’s Economic Relations Division (ERD) and selected ministries as well as local consultative mechanisms.

What have we accomplished so far?

The AEP supports the government to:

  • contribute to a global development dialogue and to a local implementation of global commitments.
  • spread out the aid effectiveness agenda at the local level by conducting divisional level workshops.
  • establish an aid information management system and to develop a national aid policy.

The project enables a continuous dialogue between the government and development partners by providing technical and logistical support to local consultative groups.

The AEP also partners with the Economic Relations Division of the government to develop a capacity building strategy and to establish a communication line with ministries to strengthen their aid coordination and management capacities
